I think talent is born. The seed is there. The seed is there and it just needs developing. Everything I’ve done I had to do. I had to play in a band, had to be part of The Stones, I had to play a guitar. I had to paint, I had to be like Michelangelo. — Ronnie Wood

Last Friday I was in Guildford. The last thing I expected to stumble upon was an art exhibition by Ronnie Wood, but if that was not enough an art exhibition by Bob Dylan too.

Decades, The Blue Smoke Suite and Stones Raw, by Ronnie Wood was released 17 November 2012.

Ronnie Wood is both musician and artist. He has worked as singer, guitarist and songwriter with The Faces, Rod Stewart and The Rolling Stones. He has been painting and drawing since age 12, even longer than he has been playing guitar. He intertwines the tow, recording his tour sand the people he meets an dperforms with through his art.

The Rolling Stones have this week embarked on a world tour to celebrate 50 years of performing.

Forest Gallery is a small art gallery at the top of Guildford High Street.
